Flags at Half-Mast
October 3, 2017
Peace River joins with the Province of Alberta and Canadians across the country in mourning the victims of the violence in Las Vegas and Edmonton. Two separate incidents, two separate attacks on innocent people partaking in public events. These attacks are intended to scare, intimidate, and provoke fear, however, they fail when we refuse to succumb to that fear. Instead, once the time for mourning has passed, we emerge more fearless than before.
In memorial to those killed and injured in the attacks in Edmonton and Las Vegas, flags at municipal buildings in Peace River have been lowered to half-mast at all facilities.
